Your Questions Answered: Complex Carbs, Oils On Candida Diet & Beneficial Fats

Question: I’ve been exploring the Candida diet recently, and I’m a bit puzzled about how legumes should be incorporated into it. They seem to be both a source of complex carbohydrates and proteins. Can you provide some guidance on how legumes should be included in the Candida diet?

Legumes are generally acceptable in moderation on the Candida diet. While they are a source of complex carbohydrates, their protein and fiber content can help stabilize blood sugar. However, it’s advisable to monitor individual reactions, as some people may find that certain legumes can exacerbate bloating or other digestive symptoms. Adjust intake based on personal tolerance.

Question: Could you please provide guidance on the recommended daily intake of oils while following a candida diet?

There isn’t a strict daily intake amount for oils on the Candida diet, but moderation is key. Healthy oils like coconut oil, olive oil, and flaxseed oil can be beneficial. Coconut oil, in particular, contains caprylic acid, which has antifungal properties. It’s advisable to focus on unrefined, cold-pressed oils and to avoid processed and hydrogenated oils. Listening to your body and adjusting based on how you feel is essential.

Question: As someone following the Candida diet, I’m curious about the role of nuts in this dietary plan, given that they contain beneficial fats. How do nuts align with the Candida diet guidelines?

Nuts are generally considered good for the Candida diet due to their healthy fats. However, it’s best to opt for raw and unsalted nuts and avoid mold-prone nuts like peanuts. Almonds, walnuts, and macadamia nuts are among the preferred choices.
